MUSIC

http://songza.com/

Songza is a free music streaming and recommendation service. Stating that its playlists are made by music experts, the service recommends various playlists based on time of day and mood or activity. Songza offers playlists for activities such as waking up, working out, commuting, concentrating, unwinding, entertaining, and sleeping. Users can vote songs up or down, and the service will adapt to the user's personal music preferences.Users can find playlists not just based on artists, songs, or genres, but also based on themes, interests, and eras, such as "songs in Apple Commercials", "90s One-Hit Wonders", and "Music of Fashion Week".Songza is headquartered in the Long Island City neighborhood of New York City.

Tunein.com:  The Web is bursting at the seams with places to listen to music and other forms of audio. TuneIn stands out for two reasons: it’s remarkably comprehensive, and it couldn’t be much simpler to use. The site — which is also available as an app for the iPhone, iPad, Android phones and other devices — puts streaming content from 50,000 sources in one place. You can look up local radio stations, browse musical genres or search for new and past episodes of your favorite podcast. It may be the closest anyone has come to building the perfect radio.

 

TV

http://aereo.com

Spurring the “TV anywhere” push, Aereo looks to relocate your screen-watching habits from your couch to … well, anywhere. The paid service looks just like the cable-box channel guide you’re used to, except you don’t even need a television. Play it from your laptop just as you would Netflix. Or play it from your iPad, iPhone or Roku box. While there are some stark limitations right now — it’s only available in New York City and is restricted to over-the-air channels — the idea behind it is an industry shaker, not least because it’s funded by pioneering TV executive Barry Diller, who helped found the Fox network. The broadcast industry isn’t pleased, but Aereo hopes to spread nationwide by next year.
